Asymptote sounds like a disease kind of....

Nychthemeron- A twenty-four hour period of time.

Or a zenzizenzizenzic, the eighth power of a number.

If X8 is a zenzizenzizenzic...

Then what would X8888888 be?

Hmmm, I do not really know. Ask your calculus professor =) he should know. Maybe. I doubt it.

Christopher Cry-sto-pher Jesus-o-pher

The idea is to pronounce the beginning of christopher as christ, as in jesus christ.

hobnob comes pretty close LOL

Although "scivies" is a close second LOL

But with "squab" you can hide behind a couch when your grandma comes in with a huge plate of spagetti, then jumping out from behnd the couch and yell SQUAB!, causing her to drop the plate. (obvious 2and a half men reference is obvious)

Any word, thoutght about for TOO long becomes weird. Take "orange". Say it over and over again, and it becomes very odd sounding and unrelated to it's meaning

Kite...Bird...Kite...Bird...Kyte...Berd...Kyt...Beerd...Kit...Beard...Tounge disengaged.....Aaargh!

Yeah, there was :-) and since Kiteman lives in the UK, HERE is the info on the Red kite, found there

My apologies for that. In FF, the ads seem to overlap the text box here once the thread gets this long, and so the "reply" key and the "add link" key are out there in right field and hard to see or impossible to see, depending on the position of the page at the time.

ya... I agree completely. ..supper....supper...suppper. a real word a use is pascetti (spagetti)

Oh man, where do I begin? When I was at uni we had a list of hundreds of these on the wall in the kitchen. Three of my favourites: Trivia: interesting fact, it's originally from the romans, who would post noticeboards at the intersection of three roads (tri-via; get it?) with local information on them. Now that's meta-trivia. Feisty: actually means "like a small farting dog", from "fysten curre". Autological: a word that describes itself, like "short", "noun", "TLA" (or "TLI" if you are being strict) and "sesquipedalian". Note that the word autological is autological. Now think about that until your brain ties itself in knots. If anyone can find a word that combines my loves of etymology, trivia and meta-ness or recursivity, I will be very pleased indeed.

I like "obfuscate." There's a bumper sticker:

Eschew Obfuscation

Which is supposed to be funny because the author didn't. But on the other hand, it's pretty difficult to convey the same nuances in anywhere close to the same number of words...
